Gen1 Brat Fender search

He didn't have any thing in his yard but his computer told us that any car or brat 78-83 would interchange.
Would this be correct?

i believe you're looking for 77-79 wagon/sedan/coupe or 77-81 brat.
Thanks, that is much better info than I got for the junkyard computer cross reference. And that explains why the '80 sedan I found had a different fender than I was looking for.
At least now, when I call around the more distant yard, I will be better imformed before drive there to look it over.
The real problem, I'm finding, the yards crushed most everything that was older than '80s. The worker that took me around said they had recently crushed a couple Brats. What a shame. I'm told there where only 92 thousand imported. Not sure if that is true but it seems like a very small number in 'Import Terms".

They had a Brat with a right front fender that was more bondo than fender. Wanted too much and had a take-it or leave-it attitude. Then I found an air cleaner can for the 1.6 presently in the Brat and he wanted $30 for it, then insisted I take it back to the car if I wasn't going to buy it.
Maybe their all not like that but this guy was.

I have said it before here on this forum, and some aren't believers.
I know exactly what guy your talking about....For the life of me I can't think of his name right now.
